[gme-users] Accessing "Preferences" from an Interpreter

Yes, such preferences are accessed through an object's registry.  You  
will need to consult the documentation concerning the registry (in  
"MGA Library") to learn about subtle concepts like the "opacity" of  
registry nodes and how the registries are organized.  I also recommend  
using the Registry Editor (Edit->Registry) in GME to observe how the  
registry entries are made when you set preferences using the Attribute  
Browser.  But the actual programming in Python is typically  

         regNode = someObj.RegistryNode("color")
         regNode.Value = "0x0000ff"
